Yo Soybean is an alternative folk band from Athens, GA that just finished recording their new album, Manifest Blasphemy. The record will be released in January, and will be available on both Bandcamp and iTunes.
Yo Soybean follow in the traditions of Dylan and Oberst, offering insidiously honest lyrics, which the band surrounds with edgy americana and newgrass. The songs are modern tales wrapped in sounds evoking simpler times.
Check out the lead single below, which bounces with slide banjo and djembe delivering an impassioned stream of consciousness concerning the mundane intricacies of twenty-something year old existence in the twenty-first century.
